Oakland Raiders coach Dennis Allen said on Monday that running back Darren McFadden suffered a high ankle sprain in Sunday's loss to Tampa Bay, but he had not been ruled out for this Sunday's game against Baltimore. McFadden's uncertain status is complicated by the fact that his backup at running back, Mike Goodson, also has a high ankle sprain and is also questionable for the game against the Ravens. "Darren had an X-ray that was negative, and an MRI, also, that was negative, so we'll see how he responds this week," Allen said, according to Comcast SportsNet Bay Area. "We haven't ruled him out for this weekend's game. "Goodie was at the doctor getting an MRI right now, and I would anticipate he's in the same boat." With two backs in jeopardy of not being able to play and the Raiders apparently reluctant to let Taiwan Jones be a primary running back because of his ball-security issues, the Raiders may be looking around to sign a back. "I mean, we've obviously got to wait and see when we get a little bit more medical information on those two guys (McFadden and Goodson)," Allen said. "But that's certainly a possibility."
